Burkina Faso raises CFA33 billion on WAEMU securities market

(Ecofin Agency) - Burkina Faso raised an amount of CFA33 billion (about $55.5 million) on the WAEMU public securities market through the issue of 6-month Treasury Bills (BATs).
At the end of this operation carried out on February 26, Burkina Faso collected CFA85.743 billion (about $144.3 million) for an initial requested amount of CFA30 billion (about $50.5 million), a remarkable coverage rate of 285.81%. This new issue brings to CFA55 billion (about $92.5 million) the total amount of funds mobilized by the country in only two operations on the market since the beginning of the year.

Burkina Faso experienced steady economic growth between 2015 and 2018. Indeed, after a deceleration in 2015 (3.9% after 4.3% in 2014), the real GDP growth rate showed a sustained level, rising from 5.9% in 2016 to 6.3% in 2017 and 6.8% in 2018, thanks to the return to normal constitutional life, favorable rainfall and enhanced investors’ interest.

According to estimates by the Burkinabe authorities, the country's GDP is expected to reach CFA8,547.2 billion (about $14.4 billion) in 2019 compared to CFA7,849.1 billion (about $13.2 billion) in 2018, representing a 6.0% growth rate in real GDP. Inflation rate is estimated at 1.9% in 2018 and is expected to be negative in 2019.
In 2020, Burkina Faso intends to raise a total of CFA540 billion (about $910 million) on the public securities market.
